Two remote Hebridean anchorages - cruising guide

Watch our cruising guides to two wonderfully remote spots in the Hebrides. Reading all the information in the cruising guides is great for choosing yourself an anchorage for the night, but being able to see what it looks like for the water add another dimension. We have included on the water footage for each anchorage so that you can see for yourself what it looks like before taking your boat there, think of it like ‘Streetview’ for anchorages. We have put our plotter screen grabs in for good measure too so you can see just how we navigated in and out.

If you are joining us for an expedition on Narwhal the films will give you a snake peek at some of the places yo might be visiting. Enjoy being transported to these wonderful places

1) Monach Islands

Located to the west of Usit in the oUter Hebrides, these tiny low lying islands are a lonely place on the edge of the Atlantic. They make a useful stopping point on the way to St Kilda or a wild and remote anchorage where you can enjoy being sung to sleep by seals on a calm night.

2) Mingulay

The second most southerly of the Outer Hebrides, Mingulay is now inhabited only by an abundance of wildlife. You want calm weather to get ashore but exploring the island on foot is wonderful as is visiting it’s impressive caves by sea kayak.
